73 points – Memphis Grizzlies set NBA record

by archysport

The Memphis Grizzlies celebrate a historic success in the NBA: The 152-79 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder is the highest victory ever achieved in the history of the North American professional basketball league. The Grizzlies screwed the 30-year-old record of 68 points ahead on Friday night to 73 points.

“It feels great to be in the history books,” says Point Guard De’Anthony Melton: “Everyone has contributed to it.” True enough: Nine players scored double-digit points, while Jaren Jackson posted the best score with 27 points. Memphis was already leading 72:36 at halftime – even though the Grizzlies’ best player, Ja Morant (22), is injured and missing.
